Performing in front of a small audience
In order for us to prepare for this, during our reading program, we practised with plays. We learned how to speak with a good tone, slow, steady talking and getting into character.
Getting into character
Students learn to read, write and perform play scripts as part of the English and drama curriculum in primary school. We also had to work together and decide on who played who from the play, Read through the play a few times first to become familiar with the vocabulary.
Knowing the script well and who the characters are is important
We enjoyed reading different plays and acting these out to our class. There were some real characters and funny story lines. Some of us were a bit nervous about performing in front of our friends. The wonderful part was, we all took part.
